campaign you ask. a mailer making the rounds in northern virginia from the romney campaign touts the candidate's strategy of doing more to fight the spread of lyme disease. yes, that is a real flyer. and earlier, the obama campaign, the burse python was a real concern for the obama campaign. a tweet from obama's press secretary ensured that residents knew the administration has banned import of the snake. now, you may laugh and there is some humor in this, but it is r very, very serious for some. ticks and snakes. because these micro targeting campaigns can really move the needle. they're important to crucial voters in crucial states like florida and virginia. ben smith, david frum, former adviser to george w. bush and corey elons. great to see you. so, you know, david, i have to say, lyme disease with so many to joke about this, it's got to be there's some crucial core of lyme disease cases and this is something people care about. turns out loudon county, northern virginia, has one of the highest rates of lyme disease in the country. could this issue really resonate? >> resonate
50, romney 43. in virginia and florida, obama 49, romney 44. they're beginning to get very depressed, the republicans, when they see these numbers. no republican has ever been elected without at least ohio. how worried should they be? >> if you ask any republican now if the election today was held, most republicans would say unfortunately it looks like president obama is leading. ohio and florida are in a close election, which is going to be must win for mitt romney. there are varying polls on virginia. virginia is looking strong for president obama but it's all over the map. president obama certainly has more paths to victory than mitt romney. he has to win florida and ohio and pick up nevada, colorado, iowa, new hampshire, wisconsin's in play. polls a snapshot of where we are now. you're right, it was before all of this tumult in the middle east began again. to the extent they represent a trend line tells us something. ohio is the only one of the three you mentioned that i think republicans are beginning to think is light blue and may be gone. >> maria, the advantage that the repub
romney is trying to flip virginia from blue to red. the campaign there slamming president obama over friday's disappointing jobs report. obama won virginia in 2008. the president hit the trail in florida, trying to hold on to another state he won four years ago. we'll have more from florida in a few minutes. >>> a suicide bomber killed six afghan civilians and founded four others in kabul. the taliban is claiming responsibility for the bombing. the u.s. embassy in kabul said insurgents have no respect for life. police believe the suicide bomber was a teenager. >>> a tulane university football player will need spinal surgery of a brutal injury today. devon walker fractured his spine in a collision with a teammate. he's listed in stable condition. he also suffered a collapsed lung and had to be revived on the field. >>> tomorrow morning on cnn, dr. sanjay gupta is looking at football injuries. more than 3,000 former nfl players and their families are suing the league over head injuries and the question is, what did they know and when did they know it? were league officials more aware o
. he's leading romney 49% to 44% in florida. and virginia. and those polls were conducted sunday through tuesday before romney's missteps and the embassy attack thing that he goofed. so there are also new numbers for two other swing states in colorado, a keating research on-site poll put the president at 49% and romney at 44% and that's also among likely voters. and then in new hampshire the wmur granite state poll shows president obama leading mitt romney 45% to 44%. all of them, 5% or more lead shown by the president. the numbers do not lie. now, if you add all of those data polling points together, it would mean an electoral college landslide for the president. okay. hit the pause button. that doesn't mean it's a done deal for sure. as we learned over the last 48 hours, a lot can happen over the next 54 days. but polling prognosticators are making it clear that romney is staring at very long odds and a very steep climb. "the new york times"' own election forecaster nate silver breaks it down like this.
starts with a rally in ohio tomorrow. later in the week, he will be in new york, florida, virginia, and louisiana. he will also, as we just mentioned a few moments ago, be traveling to wisconsin saturday. we'll have more on these stories over the next hour. >>> israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu making the rounds on this morning's political shows. the question that kept coming up, is president obama doing enough to back israel and monitor iran? t netanyahu tried to stay out of american politics but stressed someone has to draw a line restricting iran's nuclear ambitions. >> i think as they get closer and closer and closer to the achievement of weapons-grade material -- and they're very close. they're about six months away. i think you have to place that red line before them now. >> nbc's mike vicarus standing by for us now. does the white house hear those words as a shoutout today? >> i think there's no question that there's been tension between these two leaders, president obama and prime minister netanyahu. but there are things they agree on. first of all, they agree that
on the middle east. nbc's ron mott is with congressman paul ryan and he's joining us from roanoke, virginia, with more. part of a state you're going to be doing a lot of time in, no doubt. ron, good morning. >> hey, there, alex. good saturday morning to you. although this has not been the best week for the romney campaign, and a lot of it stemming from a statement he sent out on tuesday night when these attacks were just known here in the states, critical of the obama administration's handling of that crisis. problem for the campaign is that the extent of the violence there was not fully known at the time, and the statement was actually released by the embassy to try to quell that protest before it turned violent. now mitt romney has been criticized by democrats and the president who came out the next day that he has a tendency to shoot first and aim later. mitt romney has been on the defensive since then. he softened his stance a little bit yesterday in an interview on national television where he said that the statement itself was not appropriate. he said he agrees with the white house th
. virginia has three different ads that will be airing in that state over the coming days and weeks. one of those ads has to deal with the defense industry which is a big industry down in virginia. let's play a sample of these ads to give you a taste of what's coming to a tv set near your. >> this president can ask us to be patient. this president can tell us it was someone else's fault. this president cannot tell us you're better off today when you took office. >> here in florida we're not bet r off under president obama. home values collapsed. home construction jobs lost. here in colorado we're not better off under president obama. his defense cuts will weaken national security. here in virginia we're not better off under president obama. his war on coal, gas and oil is crushing energy and manufacturing jobs. >> reporter: so there's a sample of that advertising blitz from the romney campaign. we were wondering what would be the difference when mitt romney switched from primary campaign money to general election campaign money, which is what he was able to start tapping into when he got
event in fairfax, virginia, and burning question of this hour is will the gop presidential nominee keep up with these searing attacks on president obama's anti-american reaction overseas or tamp it down in light of the political counterattacks or will he avoid the topic altogether and try to switch gears to the economy, say? we will know soon enough, but in the meantime, wolf blitzer is weighing in from washington. wolfthere has been quite a bit of volley of attacks going back and forth in the last 24 hours, and some of this has come within mitt romney's own party. he does not have a solid bloc behind him supporting what he said when he criticized the president and the administration's reaction to what is going on overseas. >> he has always had a certain number of republicans as you well know, a lot of the conservatives and the tea party akvists who were always skeptical and dramatically reassured by paul ryan being added to the ticket which helped, but always a element that never really loved mitt romney to begin with. let me play for you two clips and the reaction to mitt romney's tou
and turn them out. when you see him with pat robertson in virginia, there are other constituencies, but christian conservatives in vermont arvery important. when you see him with steve king in iowa, cultural conservatives are important to governor romney. to bay's point about the poll, a lot of people question every poll. but the reason those numbers exist in our poll, the president now plus six is that after his convention, democratic intensity, enthusiasm is up and republican enthusiasm is down. yes, governor romney is winning among dependents but there's a temporary enthusiasm shift in favor of the democrats. we'll see if it lasts. anderson, one more point, i was getting e-mails saying the democrats are overplaying their hands. look at these numbers, which candidate shares your values. the president has a seven-point advantage. 51% to 42% says the president has your values. two weeks ago it was essentially a tie. >> at least at the moment, nationally, if the talk was supposed to hurt the president, if conservatives thought it t would it hasn't nationally. we picked president sta
months to go. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com >>> today, mitt romney vacations in virginia. >> i have a plan to get america working again, and i know it is going to work. for me it is not something i studied in school, but something i did for 25 years. >> barack obama pushes through florida. >> this is a choice between two fundamentally different paths for america and two fundamentally different visions for the future. >> the consequences of the few with governor of california jerry brown. and also we will speak to newt gingrich, and also revving up the economy, we have carlos gutierrez and carmax founder austin ligon. with e will be joined with peter baker of "the new york times" and a.b. stoddard of "the hill." this is "state of the union." jerry brown stayed home from the convention grappling with his sta state's debt. this fall the governor wants voters to approve a tax hike for the wealthy and increase in the sales tax. the outcome could have implications for spending mettles in washington and state capitals across the country. joining me is governor of california jerry brow
to run ads in ohio, virginia, and florida alone. we'll have more on these stories the the next two hours right here. more now, though, on the last minute cancellation by the romney campaign in colorado. peter alexander joining us now by telephone from pueblo, colorado. the governor was supposed to be speaking in about three hours. >> craig, we are here in denver. we're intending to join the campaign but they gave us a heads-up that the event was canceled. it happened at the result of an experimental plane that crashed earlier this morning where one person was killed and ended up closing two runways. as long as it's under investigation the campaign didn't want to interfere with the emergency response efforts that take place there. clearly that's going to have an impact when a candidate comes into town with all the security he would draw. romney heads off to the state of california, which won't be a competitive state but will speak to a hispanic group. right now he's losing among the latinos and hispanics 2-1. he will follow through the course of this week hitting several battleground stat
york city and then a set of whirlwind stops through ohio, florida, virginia before hitting milwaukee at the end of the week. the first time he's going to wisconsin this election cycle. joining me now, dough sdchlt ominico. he enjoys the occasion al beer, but milwaukee, really? >> maybe, maybe not. it's not just for the beer. milwaukee is an area that president obama has to run up the score to win. with picking paul ryan, it really shouldn't be all that surprising that wisconsin would be close. we've had it in the toss up column the entire time. it was the closest state of the 2004 presidential election just 0.38 percentage points separated john kerry and george w. bush. >> but then 14 points separated president obama and john mccain four years later. what's happened? >> the same 2008. and it looks a whole lot more like 2004. it could be a base election, slightly lower turnout than 2008. we've seen undecided voters say maybe they won't go to the polls. >> the stops next would he be also speaking volumes about money. anytime either one of them goes to this morning or california, it's a
in this case is a guy in northern virginia who took wedding pictures of a couple in new jersey posing in new york and used it for a political campaign in colorado. if you can follow that. and the bottom line is, he never asked consent, he just appropriated the likeness. there's a copyright by the photographer. this is what happens when you have extremism, fredricka. people do things that are inexplicable and i don't know how this guy who runs this organization in northern virginia is going to get away with it. the really strange thing is his group was designated a hate group by the poverty law center and the unusual thing is it's the only hate group in the country and had a governmental official. this guy is a supervisor in loudoun county, virginia. the plaintiffs are going to prevail in this case. >> so, richard, what is at stake here? a few things the couple is pursuing, you know, their right to privacy being violated and the misuse of their photo, the photographer, too, is involved saying it's coright infringement. to what extent does this couple the photographer have to go to prove their
of my heart. >> that was mitt romney in virginia, on saturday. campaigning with the 700 club's pat robertson, subjecting that president obama was somehow planning to take god off the currency. in fairness, mitt romney opened up with three sentences about the jobless numbers and then got on the talk about god. then talked about president obama's policy spends his time on talking about the economy. when they asked what he was actually saying. the campaign manager certainly repeated the talking point. he said the subject has been the economy, is the economy and will be the economy. mitt romney doesn't want to change the subject. he wants to change the economy and that's what he's going to do as president. to be fair, fair enough. that's the message that they want us to get. but that's not all coming from the candidate on the campaign trail. here's governor romney today i ohio. >> when and if i become president of the united states, i will not take god out of my heart, i will not take god out of the public square, and i will not take it out of the platform of my party. >> well, the coi

. these are stes in the sun belt, florida, virginia, north carolina, the southeast, corado, new mexico in the southwest that had generally been relelpublican being moved toward the democrats bya combination of more diversity, more minorities and more upscale whites. what's fascining, wolf, is that when this election began it looked like president obama was better positioned in those sun belt swing states because they more reflect his national coalition, but in fact today he's doing better in those rust belt swing states which are more of a headache for romney because the president is simply running better among the bluer older whites who are very prevalent in those states, he's running better in the midwest among theoters than he is anywhere else. >> is that in part because of the car industry? the ao itrye helped bailout gm and chrysler? >> clearly that's part. one, in other parts of the country are evangelical christians very strongly republican les a factor in the midst, but certainly th auto bailout is important. and just the message. at is t case thahey have tried to make tt mitt
